Young Wild Crab Apple trees can be seen in many garden centres and new plantings in every region. It is more difficult to find older trees in hedge rows in the countryside, due to regular hedge trimming. I don’t know of any along our own hedges. The fruit can be of several different colours deep red to usually pitted green. The tree at maturity is around 3 meters tall. There can be thorns on the twigs which is a good indicator for identification purposes.
